Arguments in a disputed Alaska House race focused partly on a ballot cast by a voter whose registration was changed by the state.

The Alaska Supreme Court, which heard arguments in Anchorage, took the matter under advisement.

Democrat Kathryn Dodge challenged the results of a recount that showed her losing a Fairbanks House race by one vote to Republican Bart LeBon.

She argued the Division of Elections wrongly counted two ballots and wrongly excluded two, including one belonging to a man whose voter registration was updated based on his application for an Alaska Permanent Fund check.

Dodge had argued the man lived in the district but the division incorrectly changed his record to an address outside the district. An attorney for the state argued the division acted within the law.
